Younger people are more likely to make use of online catch-up TV, while older people prefer recording TV programmes over a PVR or hard disc, according to a survey commissioned by Dutch services provider Telfort. The survey of 1,300 Dutch consumers found that 95 percent still watch TV on the TV set, 24 percent use a laptop and 20 percent a tablet. Students were much more likely to use a laptop, at 54 percent, and 52 percent of students said they catch up online on missed programmes. Over 40 percent of respondents said they were often distracted and their thoughts wandered when watching TV.
